Engaging Entrepreneurial Spirit is what we're all about.
Education. Exploration. Inspiration. Fit.
The Kessler Fellows Program is a cornerstone entrepreneurship program in the College of Engineering. Select juniors deeply engage in a unique year-long immersion aimed to help them identify and experience their unique fit in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The Program involves entrepreneurial education, personal exploration, a summer startup experience and the opportunity to inspire others through a reflective symposium.
Eligibility and Selection
Juniors are eligible to apply early in the fall semester. Applicants are interviewed and selected by a Program Advisory Board comprised of faculty, academic staff and entrepreneurs.
Through the generosity of Andrew J. Kessler '80 EE, Fellows receive a cash prize and a weekly stipend over the summer. In addition, if they are financial aid recipients a portion of their packaged federal loan may be reduced during their senior year.
